One year of Alicia bringing out the worst in me..♥

{this picture is from the redneck party we had--we don't dress that way normally.}


One year ago, this weekend--I met one
of my best friends. She is amazing &
has been there for me so much in the short
time that she and I have known eachother.
I just figured I would write a post for her.
Mostly cause I love her and it is our
One Year anniversary this weekend
&& her hookerface will be out of town
at a wedding & I will be cooking for Ellie. :)
But we have a date to go to dinner sometime
next week, which I am pretty thrilled about. :)

So here are some of my favvvvorite pictures.

{note: he was not drinking}
this is my favorite picture of J and I.
Cavewife took it, one night at the bar.
lol. :)

Friday Follow

I have decided that for this week I will try Friday Follow. This was something I noticed on Keely's blog at MannLand5




I have decided to join in today. I also would like to increase my amount of followers. I follow a lot of blogs and really enjoy all of the blogs that I read. I hope that you will find something here that you like & will follow along. :)


That being said, I only want you to follow me if you really love what you see..






Hope you have an amazing long weekend. :)

Ellie is home & eating like a queen.

Ellie is on a diet..of human food. High protein, no grease. So that means that I am cooking Ellie food twice a day. Last night she had 5 eggs and half a can of wet dog food and four pieces of lunch meat that were wrapped around pills. This morning she had the same thing. That dog..I say..I don't even cook breakfast for myself, and now I am cooking for her.

Ellie can have; plus other things, but this is a lot of what the vet recommended. :)
I just hope that she continues to get better, she is on some pretty potent antibodiots to try and kill the infection the rest of the way, and on pain pills. And she actually walked into the house last night on her own, and went outside, she gets tired really easy though, so I was helping her along last night. :)
Sorry that all I have been writing about is Ellie, but she really is all that I have been thinking about, so bare with me. I will get over this little obsessive moment in my life, and we can move past this. All my love, lovlies. :)

Pampered Chef.




I am having a Pamered Chef party! As much as I would love for ALL OF YOU to be there. I know that it is not possible. Buuuut wait..You can still be apart of the party. Just go here & you can purchase items through my party, just by entering my name {Shelby Holland} under the products that you want to purchase. I would love for you all to check it out! Hope you are having an amazing day.

Outside my window.

As always: Abbs does this & I love it.
You should too. Just be sure to link back
to her & leave a comment so she can check
out your answers also.
Ohhh soo close to frrrridaaaay.


Outside my window..the sun is shining..for now. :)
The time is..almost 1:35.

Today I feel..happy that Ellie gets to come home today & that she isn't still majorly sick.

I am thinking..I would like to know the test results, but not have to actually have the test done.

At the moment, I am thankful..for an amazing husband, that stands beside me, no matter what & best friends that are there for me no matter what & three amazing sisters that offer to do anything.

I am going..to clean the house tonight

I am wearing..black scrubs, black tank with a white sweater, and white sneakers.

I wish..I didn't have a vet bill to pay.

I am reading..nothing. But I do have a book on the way in the mail. You HAVE got to go here & check it out. &&& You could totally get some awesome free books. :)

I am working on..getting caught up on my blog reading.

I am hoping..to relax with the hubbs tonight & that Ellie will continue to get better.

I am hearing..people talking loudly.

Around the house..needs some major work.

I bet you didn't know..that I am watching some stupid tv show.
One of my favorite..things in the whole world is--Ellie

Ellie Update.

Welppp, just spent my lunch break at the Vets office, Ellis is feeling a lot better. They are about 99.6 percent sure that it is just an infection, either a spider bite, or a wound that got infected, or something along those lines, but nothing major like cancer or a tumor. Even though I still had the slides sent off to make sure the cells aren't something worse. :)

But she gets to come home. :) && More than likely gets to sleep in the big bed with her mommy.

Ellie's fever is gone..

Well, Ellie spent the night at the vet's office last night, and they might have her stay another night. I have been sick to my stomach, the last 3 days. I am so stressed about Ellie, and some house stuff, that doesn't seem to be going the way I want it to. I have a sore throat, a head ache, and my stomach. Uhh. I hate being stressed.

I just talked to the vet & Ellie's fever is back to normal, and she's feeling a little better. She's walked a little ways on her own. I am hoping that she starts to get better, and that she just has an infection, and not something major like cancer and/or tumor. We will get the slides back on Friday, to see if it is something major, or if it nothing at all.

I hope it is nothing at all.

Ellis possibly broke her leg.

Blah, I am stressed. I mean stressed beyond belief. Ellie possibly broke her leg. I am not sure how she did it, but she is not doing very good. She was in quite a bit of pain, I got advice from a family member who told me to give her aspirin, well I misunderstood and gave her quite a bit, and it really messed her up more than doing good.

Yesterday I took her to the emergency vet, where they ran some test, and said that she would need x-rays to see what was going on with her leg, and to see if the aspirin did any damage, but besides that she looked really healthy. I am going to try to get her into a vet today, and get her xray's and stuff.

I found a vet in Cottage Grove that will except payments, which totally works. I sent Emeli to my house to pick up Ellie, then she has to come back and drop her off at the vet. I know she doesn't want to, but I need Ellie to be seen as soon as possible.

Also, yesterday--once Justin got home, at 5, I had a Dr. appointment. I had some tumors removed, which 1. Really hurt. 2. Really sucked. 3. Made me never want to go back. 4. I have to have it all done again in 10 days. :(

Sunday Confessions && a survey to kill the time.

I rocked a headache from Friday afternoon, until Saturday night, over my right eye, horrible pain, took eight excedrin migraine, and it still didn't touch it, even put my facebook status as-- Dear Headache- Go away before I'm forced to drown you with a fifth of blueberry vodka! I am serious! xoxo- the person you are pissing off. I started drinking last night, and my headache went away. :)

I was almost an hour late to ork today. Oh yea, I was that girl. I started new medicine, and it pretty much knocks me flat in the dirt, and I took it way late. I learned my lesson, never again. Rolled into work about 7:55am {supposed to be here @ 7:00} wearing non-matching scrubs, my hair in a sloppy bun, no make up on, except for the little bit left over from last night, and a pouf in the front. Oh yea..I am that girl. :)

I have a full coffee that Justin brought me into work, that I have not even taken a drink out of. Good thing it is an iced. I just am not in the mood for coffee. But I know I will end up drinking it, I have just had like 3 cups of hospital coffee {which tastes like ass} & I am not ready for actual good coffee yet. {&& I have to pee something fierce.}

I start school in like 57 days, and I am really kinda scared, a mean..really a lot scared actually. I do not really know how I am going to manage to do homework & work full time & go to school full time, but I guess I will see how it goes. I know it is something that I need to do. I just need to really manage my time, and reevaluate how my life is ran. :) And buy stock in coffee. :)

I have had nothing but ankle pains, rashes and sore throats today at work, usually there is a large mixture of people coming in, but the last three have been ankle pain. Strange. Very strange. I guess it is because the weather is getting nicer and more people are spending time outside. :)

When I haven't been busy, I have been watching Grey's Anatomy, I have missed a whole bunch of episodes & Hulu plays the last five, which awesome for me. :) And I am going to also watch the last 5 episodes of Private Practice, which I equally love, sometimes more than Grey's.

I am eating the most amazing looking donut. White frosting type stuff, and sprinking all over it. Yum. So bad for me. But what the hell.. I am not really concerned. :)

Now--time for the survey-----------

Fill in the __________ Friday. ♥


Lauren does Fill in the Blank Friday & I love love love it.
Be sure to link up with her if you do it. :)


1. One fashion trend I really regret is wranglers..I wore every single color of wranglers, pink, purple, green, red, oh yes..I was that girl.



2. The one thing that always completes any outfit is a cardigan. I always wear cardigans. I don't really wear any jewerly, I wish I did, but I don't really know how to put jewerly together.


3. I would describe my personal style as I honestly don't think I can answer that! I wear jeans, a t-shirt, cardigans, flip flops, or these cute new little shoes.


4. My fashion muse is well..ugh. No-one really. I just really wear jeans and t-shirts. :)


5. If I could own one designer piece of clothing it would be a really nice brown or yellow designer bag. Or an amazing pair of jeans that fit just the way they are supposed to.


6. I would love to raid the wardrobe of Kendal. My little sister. She has amazing style, or my sister in-law, they both have adorable clothes. :)


7. Today I am wearing jeans, that are kinda distressed, a white shirt, and an aqua blue and white striped cardigan with little white slip on shoes. I am loving it. :)

Truthful Thursday

I have some things going on in my life
right now, that I want to share with
the world, but I am not quite ready to.
Mostly because I do not know the
seriousness of what is going on,
if it is something major or if it nothing.
I go into the Dr again on Tuesday
and then after that I have a bunch more
appointments scheduled, so we will
see how things go. Until then..
I am going to do a little
"TRUTHFUL THURSDAY."


My house needs cleaned so bad. I would be embarassed if anyone came over.
{not as bad as my old house though}

I don't floss my teeth. I know I should but I never remember.

I use Justin's deoderant, a lot.

I don't wash my sheets as much as I should with three dogs & two humans sleeping in them.

I am no longer sure if I want kids.

I really want to lay in bed the entire weekend and not set up my house.

I would really like to go back to high school.

I love pens, I always steal pens if it writes really nice.

Alrighty, I am going to do the outside my window post now. :)



Another newbie;

I got a message on facebook, from a high school friend. She writes a blog, and it relatively new to the whole thing. Please Please Please check her out. I love the way she writes, she is uber smart. & I just think she is awesome, with so much potential.

tonights dinner..

First off—I love Lasagna. I mean I LOOOOOOVE LASAGNA! I could eat it, every single night, and never once get sick of it. I usually do a hamburger Lasagna, with sauce, cottage cheese, tons of mushrooms, cheese and then some noodles there in the mix. J But this just sounds mmmmmmamazing. Like WAY good. I found it over here. I love her blog, and when I asked Justin what he thought about it, he said- Yum, let’s make that. So, I am off to go make this for dinner, I might take pictures and show you all.



Chicken Lasagna Rolls Ingredients for filling:


2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into itty bitty pieces
2 handfuls of fresh spinach, chopped
1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomoates
16oz container of ricotta
1 cup mozarella
1 egg
pinch of nutmeg
salt, pepper to taste


Sauce:
2 cups marinara sauce
1 1/2 cups alfredo sauce
2 T parmesan

12 lasagna noodles, cooked

Combine all of the filling ingredients. Lay out each lasagna noodle and spoon some of the filling on the noodle {leave about 1/2 an inch bare at the end, it will squeeze up there as you roll}. Roll up each noodle and place seam side down in a 9X13 pan. Repeat 12 times. Ladle sauce over the rolls, top with some cheese if you would like, bake 40 min at 350.




Edit: I made this last night, and It was so good.

fabulous. ♥

Tuesday..Oh Tuesday. You are
so much closer to Friday than
Monday, oh how I am loving this
t     u     e    s     d   a   y


Life is good. Like really good.
My house realllly needs a deep
cleaning, and laundry kinda needs
to be done, and the floors definatly
need to be swept and mopped but
other than that, I couldn't be happier.

My school stuff is completely taken
care of, all of my loans, and financial
aid went through, and I don't have to
pay anything out of pocket.
{at least until after I graduate.}
And now I just have to sit and wait.

Justin and I have been working long
hours, and when we were looking at
how much overtime we are both going
to have, we were pleasantly surprised,
we will have quite a bit of money coming
in, in June, which makes me very happy.
We will be able to pay everything up a
month or two, and then be able to just
kinda hang out, and get ready for
summer, and then hunting season.

I am getting so excited for hunting season.
I don't know why.
I guess I am just a crazy girl.
But also, I realized early in our relationship
that I would either become a Hunting Widow,
or I would become a Hunting Partner.
Justin was more than thrilled when I showed
an interest in hunting, and there are still
times when I tell him to just go hunt by himself
or with his friends, but most of the time
I am right there with him. And I really
enjoy going on the back roads, and watching
the sunset, or even the sunrise.
I love watching ducks take off the water, while
duck hunting, and seeing a deer, and getting all
topsy turvey feeling. :)

Awh, life is soo good.

I hope all of you are having a fabulous Tuesday.
I am early to work today, so I thought I would
blog and catch up on my commenting.

♥♥♥ Later Ladies. ♥♥♥♥
